    I don't think it has, and I've had even worse trouble than you describe
    with yanking (long strings anyway) from the kill ring, particularly when
    using a dialup.  Aside from the obligatory lossage of portions of the
    data, this has also caused my Terminal window to go into an infinite loop
    of some kind, pumping out newlines to the screen forever and generally
    not responding to any attempt to stop it.  Good luck. 

I don't have anything to offer on the Send File command, but the
"infinite loop" of newlines sounds very much like a bug that is fixed in
Genera 8.3.  For what it's worth, it's not an infinite loop; it'll stop
after printing most-positive-fixnum newlines.  Anyway, Genera 8.3 fixes
that bug.
